Pick #45, 2nd Round: WR Paul Richardson, Colorado

Discuss your thoughts about anything draft related. Mocks, College and Pro. Knock yourselves out!!! RATING: PG-13
  • This guy looks like a Desean Jackson clone. He was the only threat on a Terrible Colorado team and still balled. I'm very happy with this pick.

    He also tore apart that Oregon CB this year who's projected to be a top 10 pick next year as well.

  • I think the Seahawks should fire Carroll and Schneider and hire the naysayers on this forum to make our draft picks.

    They obviously know WAY more about football, and how to build a successful Seahawks team, than Schneider and Carroll.

A lot of crazy speed, some circus catches, one-handed catches, catches with guys draped all over him, some great separation -- all good stuff. If this guy plays to his potential, we have the possibility of having Speed Thing 1 and Speed Thing 2 with he and Harvin lining up across from each other. Having an explosion of fast receivers coming out at you on pass plays is a pretty dangerous thing for defenses.

    And for those who want a big body WR, there are still guys like that out there, and we have a bunch more picks coming up. Stay tuned!


    Richardson is a great WR. But sitting out a year with injuries and entering the NFL at 170 is a bit spooky for me. But again, Pete and JS live and breathe all of this and I have total confidence in them (despite some recent head scratchers).


    Colorado Buffaloes board says he's up to 180 and plans to get to 190 by the start of the season.

    Glad you liked the pick. I didn't. You have a problem with that?


    I think what people have a problem with is you over here whining like a 2 year old child who got their candy bar taken away. Dude, we get it. You don't like the pick. You can stop bawling and screaming now, it's rather annoying.

  • Let's keep it civil in these threads, ladies and gentlemen. Watch the tape, step back and take a break if you're getting all wound up about this. Pete and John are professionals. They don't hit it out of the park on every single pick, but they do a bit better than average. Long way to go 'til the season starts.

    I'll be the first to admit that when they picked Russell Wilson, I looked at my girlfriend and said, "Well, that was a waste of a draft pick." I wanted Nick Foles. Then I thought there was no way Wilson would start over Flynn. I still laugh at myself for that. And I learned my lesson.

  • After the initial disappointment (really wanted Latimer) I'm coming round to this pick. Looks like he was a team captain and seems to have a knack for getting separation. Then you think - two complete speedsters on the team with him and Percy, should be quite exciting.

    Hindsight being 20/20 and all, resigining Rice to 1yr deal probably should have been the writing on the wall for drafting a large receiver early (especially considering we're throwing Chris Matthews in as well).

    Does anyone else find it really comforting how Doug Baldwin called the pick, saying Richardson was the most dangerous receiver? I don't know why - Doug's only a player at the end of the day, not a GM - but I find that comment has me the most excited by this pick. Still - please bulk up Paul, don't want to have the most talented WR corps all being injury risks.

  • Hawks made hay with Jermaine Kearse last year as their deep threat. Percy with speed underneath to suck defenders in, this guy with speed over the top to make them pay and maybe even get separation.

    If a tall guy with skillz was around and an obvious pick that would have been neato. This pick makes our offense more dangerous in a different way. I'm kind of excited to see a guy touted for route-running who also has speed.

    And come on James Carpenter is the biggest head scratcher in JS's tenure by far.

    I just want to point out that Harvin is probably the strongest WR on the roster, he's stronger then Tate, Kearse, Rice, Baldwin, and Lockette (but I'm not entirely sure on RL though).

    Percy Harvin is a tank.



    On Paul Richardson, I like this move... imo this is a chess piece directed at the Cardinals as well as the Defensive Line in the NFC West. The Seahawks couldn't beat the Cardinals over the top, no matter how many times they tried in the Home loss. Percy Harvin is better served as a swiss army knife in the short to intermediate passing game.

    This is a good pick... speed, speed, speed... or in this case elite separation... is the logical term...against blitz happy teams Richardson might eventually be Russell's Guardian Angel.

    I really want ASJ but I'm not going to question the Front Office of the Superbowl Champions , Seattle Seahawks in a negative matter, no they aren't always right but they run this show not us.

    Also, this is some quality leverage against Harvin to renegotiate after this year or next plus possibly brings Baldwins asking price down just a tad.

  • Gets separation and wins over the top. The fact is that we did not have an "over-the-top" receiver before this. Sidney Rice was arguably the only guy who fit that mold. Percy has never historically taken the top off defenses. That's not Baldwin's game, and that's not Kearse's game either. We're too easy to defend without that kind of threat, which Arizona and St. Louis have already shown the world.

    This pick makes a lot of sense.

  • Just to expand on my rapidly merging opinions on this pick...

    Like: Team captain, SPEED, separation, fuidity

    Concerns: Slight build, doesn't return punts, small hands, injury history

    Key point: His separation is a strength and is something our WRs tend to lack, this should be a boon for us in deep and intermediate passes. HOWEVER many of our passes seem to be intended for WR to contest them and come down with them, leaning less on separation and more on fighting for the ball. Whether this was due to playing to our WRs strengths or a settled gameplan remains to be seen, but it could have a real impact on how well Richardson plays for us, particularly as a rookie.

  • I think it is a great pick. How many times did RW extend plays last year and have to pull the ball down due to coverage. With the time that RW can buy, this guy will make a fantastic contributor.

    I liken him to Doug Baldwin with speed. A guy that will be there for RW but also be able to finish. My cousin in CO sent me a text claiming that we are going to love this kid.

  • HawkWow wrote:PC and JS will forget more today about football than I will learn in my lifetime, but I don't get this pick. Really thought we should have got some OL at 40. I like the extra 4th (and 7th) but Richardson is awful slight for the NFL. Harvin, Rice and 170 lb Richardson? Again, I am not professing to be all knowing, but ASJ would have (even) been smarter, IMO. Can't wait to be proven wrong on this one.


    I'm with you on this one. I mean, I trust the pick although I was under the impression that PC wanted a larger WR to complement our smaller guys.

    I just don't get the pick with Koaundijo or however you spell his name still on the board. A few things they could be thinking:

    Bailey is the guy at RT and will be better than any 2nd round rookie still on the board.

    Richardson isn't larger than the other guys on the roster, but he's much faster. This much speed on the other side of Harvin could be deadly. Also, although Harvin can run the deep stuff, his forte seems to be closer to the los. Richardson could stretch the defense and take the top off, while Harvin does damage underneath.

    That kid from the CFL isn't fast, but he's big. Maybe that's the tall WR they want.

    They can still go with a taller WR in the 4th round.

    It's so tough to really figure out what our FO and coaching staff is thinking, but it seems to work so far. :th2thumbs:

  • The catch at 2:20 is eerily similar to the one Percy made for us last year.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=960BvWmzlhM#t=141

    Good thing is that he is fast on the field, not just in underwear. Too many double catches or drops though; those small hands are worrisome.

  • I'm starting to like this pick a lot when i look at his highlights and image him in our Offense. Defenses HAVE to pay attention to his speed.

    I know it was probably a reach, but the Hawks probably identified him as the perfect WR for what they need right now and so they made sure they got their guy rather than play games worrying about Draft Grades.

    What does speed do for you when your ass is on the ground from a hit at LOS? Nothing. Rams have the best DL in the NFL and they upgraded that. Moncrief was still on the board. There's size and speed. This is a nightmare pick for me but he's a Seahawk now and I'll support him as long as he on the team. Hope I'm wrong about him. Go Seahawks!!!

    Moncrief is still on the board. There may be a reason, and he may still be available, should we really want him. So are some big possession receivers.

    Remember: we are just past the point where Russell Wilson was picked, and not yet to where we picked Sherman, Baldwin, Kearse, etc., etc...

  • My first thought with this pick- the interest Seattle put out there for Brandin Cooks was probably legit. Cooks and Richardson were the two mini-speedsters from this draft with good route running.

    I think Richardson's game tape is very ordinary, but at least he has plenty of room on his frame to add weight and it makes sense that Seattle would target a vertical threat WR.

    Seattle has made good use out of bland prospects before. Bobby Wagner's college game tape was so boring it would put you in a coma, but he's been a valuable player for Seattle. Luke Willson had boring college tape, but had a good rookie season. Kearse and Zach Miller are kind of boring, but they are clutch and they help the team in multiple ways.

    Besides, many of the players we've been talking about are still on the board, and I'm guessing a few will still be there in the 4th and 5th rounds, where Seattle has four picks now. Maybe we still end up with a few favorites.

    Lol. Great pun!

    You nailed it though. The dude has legit "tilt the field" potential, and our guys will always take the guy with the incredible talent over what we allegedly "need". I Like the pick. A scenario with Harvin, CMike and this guy all on the field at the same time is downright scary.

  • Not only can the guy move, but he makes a ton of over the shoulder, fade type passes in stride and keeps his feet.

    I just don't ever set expectations for the Hawks draft picks, these guys draft kids who end up playing and while this kid isn't a 6'4 guy, he is a 6'0 guy with pads-on speed that will make the perfect weapon on those plays where Wilson drops really deep and buys time.

    Wilson can get this guy the ball and that is all that I care about.

  • As someone mentioned earlier, he played high school ball at Serra with Robert Woods, Marqise Lee and George Farmer (and those four are truly an embarrassment of riches for a coach). His high school coach is quoted in this article from a few years ago as saying that of the four, Richardson was the most polished and had the best hands. Yes, that's HS ball, but when you factor that in with what he accomplished at Colorado on a bad team with horrible quarterback play, it's an indication that he could be a really good player.

    We have speed with Percy. Lockette is still developing and is a speed guy. Now we have another speed WR. That's a good combo with Doug, Kearse and whoever else makes the roster.

  • He played in every game last year so his injury wasn't that bad apparently. He also lit up Oregon for 134 yards .

  • His ankles are small and his pinkies are short. Terrible pick?

  • Richardson gives me really strong Mike Wallace vibes. I think Richardson has better hands (although some drops, some amazing catches) and fights for the ball surprisingly well for his size.

    Definitely not the pick I'd have made, but the fit is obvious. He will help take the top off the defense, take advantage of defenses that creep up on the run, and shows the ability to recognize and throttle down in zone.

  • Watching tape he reminds me of Marvin Harrison, minus Marvin's elite hands. Quickness, down-field separation, awareness and route running seem to be Richardson's strengths. Same build type as Marvin too, albeit more explosive (Harrison ran 4.49 at his combine). If he has the work ethic... his "issues" improve, which include his slight size and drop tenancies, then boys and girls we have a game changer.

    I think we needed a guy like Richardson. His speed will be something that defenses have to account for. No more single coverage outside, which now opens things up for everyone else. No, he probably wasn't who we are waiting for at #45 (I'm guessing Lee or maybe Matthews). And no, I don't think he starts week 1 necessarily. However, we may see him at PR and should at least see him in a few packages at WR and potentially more as next season progresses.
